SIX QUESTIONS

Exclusive to Mimisbrunnr.info, Six Questions is a column featuring interviews with artists, academics, and otherwise notable individuals that regularly work with topics related to ancient Germanic studies. With Six Questions, Mimisbrunnr.info hopes to provide data on a subject often obscure even to specialists in the area: how concepts of the ancient Germanic peoples are introduced, interpreted, and explored in the modern world.

Methodology

To maintain accessibility for as wide an audience as possible, Six Questions interviews are conducted in English over a variety of media, often by way of e-mail or social media. Interviews are unedited beyond typo corrections, minor adjustments, and formatting. External links in interview bodies are provided by Mimisbrunnr.info. Interview subjects are contacted by Mimisbrunnr.info. No process is in place for random selection of subjects.

Please Note

Six Questions is not a promotional platform. Mimisbrunnr.info's decision to conduct an interview with a subject does not signify an endorsement nor do Mimisbrunnr.info personnel necessarily agree with a subject's comments. Mimisbrunnr.info does not provide analysis of interview subject responses beyond what is present herein. Interviews are intended as freely usable data and are provided to the public as-is.
